BikeABQ is made up of members who love our city, love to ride, and who are dedicated to rider safety.
BikeABQ members Dusty and Gay Blech will be leading the ride from UNM Parking Lot Q on University near KNME along the Diversion Channel Bike Path north to the Bike Valet at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta Park leaving at 5:00 AM.
The ride will take about one hour and is 8 miles long.
For riders who want a shorter option, a midpoint meeting place to join the group will be where the Diversion Channel Bike Path crosses Singer Blvd., near the intersection of Singer and Chappell. Meet the group there at 5:30 AM.
At the end of the ride, bicycles are parked free and protected at the Balloon Fiesta Bike Valet.
All participants must have head and taillights, helmets, and water.
BikeABQ volunteers will be needed to help stop traffic (which should be minimal at 5:15 AM) on Indian School Road and to act as caboose riders to trouble shoot and help move the group along.
Please join us and bring your family and friends. This will be great fun for the bicycle riders, and a grand adventure, especially for the young participants.

The City of Albuquerque has more than 400 miles of bike paths and trails with more in the works.
Bike detours are in place for Silver Ave between Hermosa & Buena Vista. Bicycles will be instructed to use Lead and Coal instead. This is due to construction for improvement to the Silver Bike Blvd. See the image below for detour details.
You can read about the Silver Ave Bicycle Blvd project and see the updated drawings for the section from Yale to Carlisle on the City of Albuquerque project webpage. There will be a variety of changes to improve the Bicycle Blvd aspects, pedestrian use, and parking.
Help spread the word about how the new HAWK signal works. It’s unfamiliar, so the more people that know about how it’s supposed to be used, the safer it can be for everyone!
